UPS Tracking Procedure

Pickup  - Copyrights UPS

Pickup – Copyrights UPS

UPS customers are automatically assigned a tracking number when they create their shipment. This tracking number can be used by both the shipper and the recipient to determine the current status of the shipment, verify delivery of the shipment and access delivery change options. A shipment reference can also be assigned, which will help the customer to track their shipment easily and quickly. This unique reference code may contain as many as 35 characters in a combination of number and letters. It can be used to allow customers to coordinate with the filing systems or billing, reference either the customer’s job number, Purchase Order number or Bill of Landing number and make it easy to recognise the shipment by its description. This feature can be used by visiting the UPS website and selecting the Track by Reference function, which can be found on the Tracking page. Customers then need to indicate whether their shipment type is freight or package, select their shipment date range and type in their reference code in the special Shipment Reference field. The process will then be completed once the Track button has been selected.

If a delivery has been unsuccessfully attempted by a UPS driver, a UPS InfoNotice will be left that contains a special UPS InfoNotice number. This number can be found just above the bar code on the bottom of the UPS InfoNotice. This number can be used to track the shipment, to change the delivery options or to verify delivery of the shipment. Simply visit UPS’s website, enter the unique 12 digit UPS InfoNotice number in either the InfoNotice Numbers or Tracking field and follow the detailed instructs that appear.

UPS customers also have the option to track as many as 25 shipments when they email UPS they UPS tracking numbers. They will then receive a detailed tracking response. Other special tracking options that are provided by UPS include UPS Express Critical Shipment Tracking, tracking with a mobile device and UPS Enhanced Tracking.

UPS is a leading international messenger company that was founded in the USA in 1907. The company’s motto is best service and lowest rates, which holds true to this day.

UPS in Progress

Cargo – Copyrights UPS

Over the last century UPS has grown to be one of the world’s most recognisable and admired brands. Today, UPS is the world’s biggest package delivery company and operates in more than two hundred countries. UPS uses advanced technology as well as access to resources combined with a fully integrated network of human, physical and technological assets to deliver parcels and other types of items to millions of destinations around the world.

The company’s modest beginnings began in 1907 when James E. Casey borrowed $100 from a friend to establish the American Messenger Company in the city of Seattle. In those days clients used the company to deliver packages, notes, trays of food from restaurants and baggage all over Seattle. The company began focusing on package delivery for retail shops and soon began using motorcycles to improve the speed of delivery. The company changed its name to UPS in 1919 and acquired a second company in Los Angeles to meet growing demands.

UPS introduced the first ever conveyor belt to handle packages in 1924 and by the 1930s had extended to a large number of destinations scattered all over the East Coast of the USA. The company was quick to utilise the USA’s increasing air services and in 1977 UPS was delivering packages to customers in every state throughout the USA. In the 1980s the company purchased its first aircraft and started delivering parcels to destinations outside of the USA.

UPS took advantage of the developing technology in the 1990s to provide electronic tracking of parcels and after the launch of the company’s website in 1994 UPA was also able to offer online tracking and ordering. UPS became a publicly traded company back in 1999 and has acquired more than forty companies that have helped it to extend its scope. These companies include industry leaders in air freight and trucking, business services and retail shipping, customs brokerage and international trade services. This has helped UPS to provide a first rate service and help the company to remain true to its original motto of best service and lowest rates.

  20. Mr Samuel Chi Fung Wong

    Please advise us what time the parcel can come today. The tracking record just said 14.9. 4.40 out for delivery.
    As we wait for yesterday until now. They have collected
    The parcel at 12 from Stratford on Avon and what time they can arrive today to Middlesex, London?

  21. Christopher Matthews

    Two things:

    1. UPS’s tracking system is both frustratingly and disappointingly poor. Aside from confirmation that a package is ‘out for delivery’, it provides no information of value. Perhaps check your competitors who offer (a) a smaller delivery (two hours rather than 11 hours!); and (b) a graphic showing how many deliveries are on the driver’s route, which delivery location the driver currently is, and what number one’s own location is (updating on page refresh).

    2. Don’t put the comment field at the very bottom of the comments page, where one has to scroll ages to find it.

    In short: reassurance, confidence, and clarity: all missing from the UPS tracking customer experience.

  22. Anna

    Where is my parcel?! This is the 2nd day that I have missed the driver, while I was on a school run. This is redicilous why can’t you send the customer and sms with a time frame or have an online tracking platform so customers are aware where the driver is or how long they will have to wait for their parcel. Who has the time to wait all day at home for a deliver. Absolutely rubish !

  23. Danny

    Hi you’re driver has again lied I been in all day had nothing I looked downstairs and again nothing.

    1ZW7989A6890699180 I need my parcel now.

  24. David Johnson

    Your d delivery person is a liar. I have been in all day waiting. My buzzer hasn’t went, my door hasn’t knocked, there is nothing outside my door and there is no card?!

  25. Mark Wilson

    As soon as I saw a package I was waiting for was being delivered by UPS I knew it wouldn’t arrive and you have lived up to expectations. Your online system has been saying its out for delivery all day, I’ve been here and it’s now 11.30 at night., no parcel and no delivery card. I guess it won’t be coming today then and I’m now away for 4 days and needed the contents of this parcel.
    Why do people use you when there are so many other reliable delivery services to choose from.

  26. Lee crossey

    Hi my package arrived in East Midlands on friday 2nd September it is now Sunday and has not moved and not out for delivery as of 10.40am yet moved swiftly before reaching uk . is there a problem with my delivery ? Delivery tracking number is 1Z4AX5856794680591 . Thank you

    No card left. No info about who to call or where I could alternatively collect.

  33. Berndt Helmreich

    Hello. UPS tried to deliver my parcel on the 15th, but no one was at home. They didn’t leave a card and I only found out just now that it was delivered by calling the manufacturer, who gave me the tracking number. I now found out that my parcel waits at a collection point just around the corner and I would like to pick it up ASAP. However, will I definitely need a UPS notification card or is my passport and a proof of address sufficient?

  34. Rachel

    Won’t except my tracking number? ??

  46. Danielle

    My parcel was supposed to be delivered on Wednesday 27th . It is now Thursday 28th and I still have not received my parcel , so I decided to track it. It appears that an attempted delivery was made , states I wasn’t home. Half an hour ago, I’m still in my pyjamas and haven’t left the house all day. This is the second time this has happened. Clearly a case of lazy couriers who can’t be bothered to do the job they are paid to do. I am furious and will not be using this service for expensive goods in the future.

  47. Ann

    I was supposed to have received my delivery yesterday nothing came . When I tracked it said on its way to deliver it. Now it’s says reschedule to deliver it in 3days time. I’m so angry .
